Sony Mobile will release 4 to 5 MediaTek-powered Xperia devices in 2015 according to a report by Digitimes. The report suggests that Sony Mobile is adopting the MediaTek MT6732 chipset, which is a 64-bit 1.5GHz quad-core LTE platform.
Sony plans to use Taiwanese-based ODMs including Arima Communications, Compal Communications and FIH Mobile to release around four to five entry-level and mid-range models in 2015 using this MediaTek chip.
MediaTek plans volume production of the 64-bit quad-core MT6732 chip, as well as the octo-core MT6752, later this year. The MediaTek MT6732 chip is based on the ARM Cortex-A53 64-bit processor and features ARM Mali-T760 graphics. Other specs include dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, 4.0, a 13MP image signal-processor and H.265 Ultra HD video record & playback.
